Summary
  • Nick Broomfield explores the life of Aileen Wuornos, the prostitute executed in Florida for killing six men. Includes examinations of her childhood, testimony at her trial by Broomfield, and a chilling speech by Wuornos herself
  • "Acclaimed director Nick Broomfield's vision takes you behind the sensational headlines of America's first female serial killer and into the true life and unbalanced mind of a woman trying to deal with a brutal past and an even more deadly future. Both timely and terrifying, this powerful film provides an unsparing look at a madwoman's trial, appeal and execution. You will be mesmerized by the true and tragic story of a paranoid prostitute who began killing her customers in a murderous rage ... Filmed at Aileen Wuornos' request, and containing her last interviews, this unflinching film recounts Aileen's life at the margins of society and shows her escalating psychological unraveling as she approaches her execution."--Container notes
